    So, the turkey was a massive success.
    I personally don't like turkey so when I was given one and asked to cook it any way I wanted I just went for it.

    Rub - teds Bone Dust
    Injection - 1 part butter 1 part Franks Hot Sauce
    Brine - Mad Hunky pork brine

    I brined it for 2 days followed by injection of butter and franks hot sauce.
    (see what I'm doing here, very non turkey flavours)

    After this i lifted the skin and put some Ted's bone dust rub under there.
    Into the Kamado @ 350 for a couple of hours with the smokai and bobs your uncle.

    Taken to 161f and rested for 45 minutes this thing was So juicy and full of flavour it was ridiculous.

    Pics (coz everybody loves pictures)

    We also fried a 8kg one after using the same method

    I've always wanted to deep-fry an entire turkey. How'd that turn out?

    oily ;)

    no....:p
    look, it was nice but not my prefered method
    roasting properly gave a much nicer flavour IMO.
    a deep fried chicken may be ok as there is more skin to taste good but the turkey wasnt cooked as evenly as a slow roast

    Kamodo turkey looks awesome, albeit on life support :lol:

    "Can I interest you in a wafer thin mint?"

    Looks great - just reminds me how many more gadgets I "need"

    ;)

    I saw the name of this thread and thought it was some kind of recipe for a GE-turkey which would thank you for eating it.
